Study Protocol

Manuscripts in the Study Protocol section report planned or ongoing research studies. A manuscript will not be considered if the associated data collection is complete when the manuscript was submitted. Publishing study protocols enables researchers and funding bodies to inform the research community regarding the planned or ongoing research, which could reduce unnecessary duplication of work and promote collaboration. Protocol manuscripts should be kept within 2500 words.

Peer Review Process

The China Health Review adopts a single-blind review process for the original research and topical review sections. Each manuscript would be screened by the editor for general suitability and send out for a double-blind review process if deemed appropriate for the Review. Based on the recommendations of the reviewers, the editor then decides whether the article should be acceptable. Sections such as Perspective, Interviews, and History Speaks are invited. Interested authors should contact the editor before submitting a manuscript.


The review period is generally within two to three months.


It is requested that authors should have their paper checked with a native English speaker colleague or professional for English syntax, grammar, etc., before the submission of the final version. Manuscript with serious writing problems cannot be accepted.
